On behalf of the Arlington Community Schools Board of Education I would like to welcome you to the Arlington Community School’s website where our mission is to empower and inspire all students toward lifetime learning, career service, and good citizenship. Our vision is to fully engage and inspire our staff, parents and community to create an environment where students can achieve their highest potential and become productive citizens in an ever changing, challenging world. ACS boasts our own Arlington Community Schools Council of Parent Teacher Association with an active large membership.
ACS represents the finest in public education through strong partnerships with our town leaders and local industry. I invite you to peruse around and learn about so many fantastic things happening at ACS. Our five-year strategic plan includes leading strategies to include the most advanced technology, focusing on developing and retaining effective teachers, and rigorous academic programs that prepare our students for entrance immediately into the job force or postsecondary education. We are very proud of our exemplary school district and the level of the community wide commitment to our academic excellence. We offer many advanced courses such as the Arlington Scholars program and dual enrollment. In addition, we are quite proud of our flourishing STEM program and Career and Technical programs. This past year we instituted a one to one program in our middle school that has been wildly successful.
At ACS we believe in civic responsibility and duty and this is on display every day at our four schools. ACS will continue to strive for excellence and we invite all stakeholders to be active participants in the development of our future leaders.
Dale Viox, Board Chairman
